Re: An eBay EB bargain in Sydney.. ?

ahhhaa and by chance does anyone know how to hook the horn back up to the steering wheel instead of the blinker stalk?
it really doesnt help trying to reach and push the blinker stalk when someone pisses you off!

um WTF????? a ricer wheel that is apparently standard on an EB that is now on an XF (before i got it ) which are both fords......please explain!
difference is on the XF the horn is on the blinker stalk where as the horn on an EB is in the centre of the steering wheel....dunno where you think the rice is.

Re: An eBay EB bargain in Sydney.. ?

ok Dav.. back to basics.. Maybe I was a bit flippant about what I said..

If you mix wheels, or any other bits on different models of the same car, odd things can happen..

You mentioned your XF had the same looking wheel as the EB..
XF's never.. 'never'.. had the same looking wheel as on any 'E' series Falcon, I've had plenty of XF's, which is a totally boring car.. (Yes I'm that old but I'd never admit it)..

What one needs to do with any parts change (however simple it may seem to be) is check other things it might change as well..
Just because something bolts on doesn't mean it will work ok, especially where electrics or elecronics are concerned..

Think of it like a computer.. It's great when the bits are right.. but mix odd bits and odd things happen..

ok i was a bit uppy too.. thing is though, dont get the impression that i changed this steering wheel as i didnt. this is how i bought the car. i didnt know what this was off...i thought it might have been an EA till i seen this thread. the horn works in the normal XF style....the blinker stalk. obviously there is something missing as in a plate and the electrics being hooked up in the EB wheel as when i push it there is nothing under the cover,
all i want to know is if it will be easy to make the horn work through the steering wheel again as thats what im used to......whoever thought that it was a good idea to put a button on the end of a blinker stalk and make that the horn has obviously never driven a car. mashing in to the horn in rage loses its affect if you have to try and find the end of your blinker stalk and to add insult to injury you usually turn your blinker on in the process.
